                    7.4

                    Staff and room was very comfortabe

                    Hard to find and location was a dark street with poor lighting and high risk.

                  • Couple
                    6.6

                    Rooms were clean and wifi works very good.

                    When we were checking out they wanted to charge us mini bar (we did not use it) and without any question they wanted also to add some ''park'' fee...without any question if we agree with it. At the end when we solved all the issues we couldn't get bill that we paid and we had to ask them to write us some confirmation...was a bit strange.

                  • Single
                    8.8

                    It's a pretty little hotel. It's not on the beach, but pretty close. Just off 5th Ave.

                    The elevator was out of service during entire stay. Not a huge issue, since I was on 2nd floor. But does seem pretty lame for a hotel of this sort.

                  • Single
                    8.8

                    Nice hotel, close to beach with very nice staff. Always prepared to help if possible.

                  • Couple
                    6.6

                    good staff and perfect position.

                    The room has his windows on the aisle...so you can't open it and the air can't circulate in the room. Ask for a balcony room or 4th floor rooom

                  • Older travelers
                    8.2

                    Excellent place - between 5th Aveny and seaside. Perfect hotel staff. Good value for money.

                    Only continental breakfast.

                  • Family with children
                    6.2

                    It is conveniently located to the shopping/pedestrian strip of 5th Ave, as well as one block away from the gorgeous beach.

                    Upon pulling off the covers to hop into bed imagine my disgust when I saw blood stains on the sheets!!! Al, the mgr/owner apologized profusely & quickly changed the sheets. Then sometime in the middle of the night my daughter awoke to a cold, wet pillow & mattress. Her portion of the bed was directly under the A/C unit which was mounted on the wall close to the ceiling. The condensation was dripping out of the unit upon her side of the bed. We shoved the bed out from under the A/C unit & placed a towel beneath & listed to the drip...drip...drip as the water hit the saturated towel.

                    8.2

                    The hotel is very comfortible and occupies a great location on pedestrian street very close to the best part of beach but out of noice from bars etc. The swimming pool on the roof is not big enough for swimming but offers great sea views.

                    Some rooms have no view and ac can be very noisy - ask for a rooms in 4-th floor, which are the best even with breeze .

                    The staff was knowledgable and spoke many languages. Very polite and helpful.

                    Pool was much smaller than the hotel pictures and description it had.
